Hackesche Höfe

Hackesche Höfe Berlin

Really trendy shoppers grumble that the Hackesche Höfe, a series of eight interconnected courtyards, have become too commercial, expensive and touristy, but for one-stop shopping for local finds they are great fun. First of all, there’s the Art Nouveau grandeur of the courts themselves, especially the beautiful façade of the first courtyard covered in glazed blue tiles. Shops include fashion, accessories, food and art, all locally designed and made (in some cases by artisans who are sitting in their ateliers at the back of the shops). Don’t miss Hoffnung, an incredible leather emporium in Courtyard 4, Schmuckwerk, a lovely jewlery atelier;  Freitag, a whimsical shop dedicated to all-things (fashionable) rain wear in Courtyard 5 and Promobo, a great collective of artisans that carries everything from trendy fashion to gorgeous leather bags. After a shopping spree here, exit the Höfe on the Sophienstrasse side and have a coffee at Barcomi’s.
